Strategic Focus

To train teacher-researchers with strengths in current research perspectives in Science Education (especially as it pertains to their reflection on their knowledge and own practices) and the critical use of ICT in science teaching and learning processes supported by epistemological, pedagogical, and didactic dimensions. To raise strategic alliances to another level in addressing environmental and sustainability issues, reflections on teaching and learning processes of scientific concepts, challenges, obstacles, and tensions faced by a science teacher when making use of Project-Based Learning.

Research Areas and Topics

  • Information and Communication Technologies for the teaching of natural sciences.
  • Training of natural science teachers.
  • Environmental Education.
  • Project-Based Learning.

  • Design and development of a training process for ICT appropriation directed to university professors from the regions of the Department of Antioquia in the areas of health, engineering, and education using design-based research (DBR) as a methodology

Research Portafolio

  • Expert advice for undergraduate and postgraduate students, training, workshops, and design of online courses aligned with ICT 
  • Open talks to the academic community related to experimental works in sciences supported by digital resources
  • Support to the teaching staff in the usage of technological resources they employ in science courses, specifically in physics
  • Training in the use of digital educational resources that accompany the development of experimental work in the areas of natural sciences, aimed at secondary school teachers and professors from the School of Education
  • Specialized advice in some relevant topics of environmental education
  • Training regarding assessment for teachers of higher and elementary education
  • Design and development of accompaniment processes for teachers, especially beginner teachers of elementary, middle, and higher education
